MARINERS 1, TWINS 0
First baseman Logan Morrison’s throwing error in the eighth inning accounted for the only run as Seattle defeated Minnesota after a long rain delay.
In the makeup of an April 8 postponement, Dee Gordon led off the eighth with a double against reliever Trevor Hildenberger (1-1). Jean Segura laid down a sacrifice bunt and Morrison threw the ball into right field, allowing Gordon to score.
James Pazos (1-0) got the win in relief of starter Wade LeBlanc, who tossed six scoreless innings. Nick Vincent worked a 1-2-3 eighth and Edwin Diaz struck out the side in the ninth for his AL-leading 14th save in 15 chances.
Twins starter Jake Odorizzi also threw six shutout innings.
